Reviews

  • "The book that everybody’s talking aboutI read it and was entranced."

    The Times
  • "This is the first book I couldn’t put down this year… Almost offensive with its close-to-the-bone truths, it’s shockingly relatable. And legitimately laugh-out-loud funny. Ottessa Moshfegh is sharp, savage and hilarious. "

    Isabel Dexter, Elle
  • "The superabundantly talented...Moshfegh’s sentences are piercing and vixenish she is always a deep pleasure to read."

    New York Times

    Daily Telegraph
  • "Electrifying... [Moshfegh] is adept at crafting compelling female characters who violate the rules of femininity... Moshfegh’s protagonist is an unlikely revolutionary."
